The objective of this paper is to identify and develop options for actions that the U.S. Government could take to support a transition to the production and sourcing of zero-deforestation palm oil from countries in Africa that harbor large areas of intact forests and have significant potential for oil palm expansion. The opportunities identified are based on a thorough literature review, including forest cover data for both countries, as well as interviews with key stakeholders using a semi-structured questionnaire. The goal is to spur a dialogue that will inform the development of strategic investment opportunities for the Tropical Forest Alliance 2020 (TFA2020) member companies, the U.S. Government, and other donors. The paper focuses on Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) based on an analysis of forest cover and potential for oil palm expansion across several countries in the region.
